I consider myself a fairly well organised, punctual, responsible type of person. I check the back-pack the night before, I lay out the clothes, we start lunch early just to make sure and STILL we're usually not out the door on time. I can not imagine being responsible for 23 kids at a time!
I couldn't do it. I just could not do it.
Did I mention that yesterday was the day I was volunteering at my daughter's school? Well, it was, and I did... and holy crap. Definitely not the career choice for me. I have been a manager at several different types of establishments. I have said to my staff at various times "You are behaving like CHILDREN!" I was mistaken. Not once has a staff member thrown a shoe at me, or peed on the floor in front of me, or demanded to hold my hand for 20 minutes.
You know what's harder than herding cats? Herding Kindergartners.
